Morgan Burnett selected as “Featured Player of Week”
GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Featured Player of the Week for Week 13 is safety Morgan Burnett. In Sunday’s 23-14 win against the Minnesota Vikings, Burnett thwarted two Vikings drives in Packers territory with interceptions during the third quarter, including one theft in the end zone.
Both picks changed the complexion of the game with the ensuing drives leading to field goals that helped the Packers to victory. Burnett matched his single-game career high with the two interceptions. He also added seven tackles on the day, including one for loss.
The Hall of Fame’s Featured Player of the Week program features an exhibit with memorabilia from each week’s game, including a game ball autographed by the selected player or players.
